Term 1 - All About Me

Autumn Term 1 - All About Me
 
This is possibly the most exciting term for your child, as they start school for the first time!
 
We will spend a lot of this term getting to know your child and their family, and let them get to know us too! A key part of this term will be spent learning routines and expectations, and of course making friends and enjoying lots of explorative play.
 
We begin to formally teach Phonics (reading and writing) through Letters and Sounds. We encourage that this learning is shared at home by sending home sound books so that you can learn together with your child. Your child will also take home books to share with you, continuing the learning journey towards independent reading that children in our Little Acorns nursery class have already begun.
 
Children will also begin to participate in practical and playful Maths sessions from White Rose Maths, and each child will have a learning step to share and practise with you at home too.
 
We also have lots of inspirational activities for your child to participate in too, such as creating self-portraits in paint (inpsired by Van Gogh), collage, colour mixing with paint, exploring using our senses and creating an 'All About Me' box.
 
We also begin to teach RE through stories, and the teaching of our Christian values, which are also shared in weekly assemblies.
 
We learn lots of songs and rhymes too and of course, we participate in lots of outdoor play and learning in our wonderful conservation area and sensory garden.
